A film shoot took #danielabt and #lucasdigrassi to Jamaâ El Fna on Thursday, the famous market place in the heart of Marrakesh. The task to be mastered by the two #Audi drivers: buying a hat, a basket and shoes in the traditional souk for 500 dirhams (approx. 50 euros), but spending as little as possible on their purchases. The challenge was won by #danielabt, who afterwards proudly delivered his shopping to Team Principal Allan McNish.

Daniel Abt and #lucasdigrassi got to listen to traditional Moroccan music at the branch office of Audi’s partner DHL. The two Formula E stars received an enthusiastic welcome from the DHL staff, avidly signed autographs and patiently fulfilled selfie wishes.

Lucas di Grassi spent the Christmas holidays in two different worlds: a skiing vacation in Colorado (USA) was followed by the family’s first joint Christmas celebration with their son Leonardo at home in Brazil.
